Site Update

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 10:16 am

The site has really changed a lot since my last update. I’ve been kind of busy making changes and neglected to post them on here.

One of the things I have added on the forum is a section where I post the site changes I have made (or at least the major ones). I talked about a member map earlier, and have finally added one to the site in the forum area. I have also added Homeland Security Threat Level Information to the portal page for the forum.

Another one of the big changes I have made is the addition of Member Awards for the site. I currently have a few different awards offered, and am thinking about adding more.

The forum section has changed a lot. There have been a few major changes and several minor ones. One of the major changes is that I have split the portal page and information on there into 3 pages (the map and Affiliates getting their own respective pages). Another simi-major addition (though not really used yet) is the Wiki discussion area. Most of the minor changes are graphical including the addition of forum graphics and new rank images.

Among the major additions I made is the addition of the Military Power MilSearch search engine. This search engine searches many military related sites and, therefore, is best used when searching for military information.

Been a while

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 11:29 am

I know it has been a while since my last entry, I’ve been working on a lot of things for Military Power, as well as other items not related like work, school, ect.

Some of the Updates I have done include adding military smilies for the forum, adding several more articles for the wiki, adding a Facebook Page for Military Power, attempting to advertise on other sites, and getting some ideas and files for upgrading the site (keep an eye out for those).

Wiki

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 10:46 am

 On September 13, 2007, I started a wiki here at Military Power.  Currently it is still under construction and thus not open to the public, though I’m hoping that by the end of the day I will have it to the point that I can open it up to members of the forum at least.

Map Feature in Question

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 3:31 pm

Hello everyone. I started a thread here about trying to get a “Member Map” of sorts, and what type we would like.  I have received several comments on this so far, but would like more of a consensus from all active members.  Also, on a different note, we have a toolbar for Military Power, as you may be aware of.  On this is a chat feature where you can chat with anyone who has our toolbar installed and who is on it.  I plan on being on the chat feature when ever I am online, though I may not be able to respond at all times.  Feel free to suggest any features you would like to see implimented here.

New Military Power Toolbar

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 3:07 pm

Military Power now has a toolbar for your browser. It has items such as links to new posts, links to new Blog entries, links to new PMs, as well as easy access to important pages on Military Power. There is also a Chat area where people with the toolbar can chat with each other. There is weather and e-mail notification as well as a search feature where you can search the forum or search engine. Check it out…

you can download it at http://militarypower.ourtoolbar.com

There are some problems with the toolbar which we are aware of. We are currently working with Conduit (the toolbar provider) as they are making a new version of the toolbar which should fix the RSS feeds problems. For now the New Posts, MP Blog, and PM Box all work sporadically, please bear with us on that.

Updates…

Filed under: Uncategorized — KnightTemplar @ 6:41 pm

Well, there has been a lot of changes since my last update.  We have completely moved off of gratis-serve.de and into military-power.net.  Also, the forum is now moved from invisionplus hosting to freeforums hosting.  This move has caused some problems, but I think most of them are now fixed.

Our first problem came about a week after the move.  While in the process of swithching servers one of the hard drives crashed.  A freak accident, but it did wipe out a lot of work and cause some people to be confused about the forums, as I had just told everyone that the old forums were going away and the new forum was where to go.  Most of the rest of the problems stemmed from the differences between invisionplus and freeforums.  The simple breakdown of this is that invisionplus lets you customize virtually everything, and freeforums is very limited in the customization you can do, but has MUCH better service and a lot of neat additions to make the site better and more functional.

We have also received our first two international members ever!

Also, over the last couple of days I have added a few new videos including videos of the MiG-29OVT at the Zhukovsky Airshow, a Hellfire Missile Demonstration, and a 1000lb JDAM Demonstration.  I hope you enjoy.

We have a whole slew of new members (mainly because everyone is new since this is a brand new Forum since our last update).  Here they are:

Staff (starting from Site owner down to Moderator):  KnightTemplar, Nullified Knight, Forestry_manDCNR07, count1man,  and Shadow

Members (by join date):  CrazyCatman, Hook, JennaerykJmessy9, Chris.Globe, Deimenried, tmdevildogs, Goliath, and babygris

Galleries Transferred

Filed under: Site News — KnightTemplar @ 3:49 pm

Today the galleries have been transferred to the new server.  I still need some good ideas of images to place in the image gallery.  I have an Avatars sub-page, and am planning a Backgrounds subpage.  If you have suggestions let me know.

I got the F.A.Q. page started as well.   Only 5 or so questions right now, so if anyone knows more I should add let me know.

I also added meta tags to some of the pages now, so hopefully search engines will start finding us.

Finally, I think this is about to get started.

Filed under: Site News — KnightTemplar @ 3:33 pm

Well, after a very long wait, I believe you will start seeing information posted on here on a simi-regular basis.  A lot has happened to the site since my first post.  For one, several members have disappeared (and some have returned).  We have also gotten several new members.  We also had a period of time where we had several international visitors, though none have registered as of yet.  Also, I have added some new staff positions.  Most recently I registered my own domain name and have begun moving the site off of the German hosted gratis-server.de and into Microsoft OfficeLive.  Though this causes some problems, I think I have fixed the majority of them.

Those members that have joined since my last post are:
